A migration project, as a whole, is a big task and there are lots of things to plan and to consider.
A lot of our customers are facing the same challenges, we thought it would be a good idea to share some of our project experiences. This month's focus is a mail migration project.
One of the challenges companies face with "mergers and acquisitions" is how they merge the mail systems. This could be as simple as consolidating two similar mail systems, or as complex as having to bring in mail from a totally different solution.
One of our recent projects was just that. This customer had acquired part of another company. The acquired company had been using Domino for mail, the customer was an Office 365 user. The customer had no experience with Domino nor did they have access to the source mail system. The host company were passing two copies of the mail files - one for testing, one for the live cut over.
How were they going to migrate the mail files with no idea of what to do with, or how to open a domino mail file? This had to be done securely and in a timely manner.
